Oh No! Not VINTAGE!
So much for venturing out of my comfort zone in 2008! To quote Stacy, I kicked the door wide open with this one! :) If you've been following along with my last couple posts, you read that I resolved to try some new styles of cardmaking, other than my usual "cutesy". Well, I made the BIG mistake of asking for suggestions. I should have known that you all would do just that! :)
First, it was ELEGANT, then FUNKY. Ok, no problem so far. But, VINTAGE?!! I cringed, I scowled, and I nearly threw in the towel right then and there! I love the vintage look, but I don't do vintage! I even had to take a night off from stamping just to dwell on it. Do I have to do this? Will they notice if I just ignore the suggestion? hmmm
But, I got home from work tonight and a thought came to me. . . what if I do a little TINY vintage card. That will be easier, right? So, here it is my dear friends... a 3x3" note card. Does it pass? Please tell me it does! And that I can go back to my cutesy comfort zone again. :)
Seriously, THANK YOU all for your comments and suggestions and for having FUN with me. You're my inspiration! Stampin' Smiles, Pam :)

ETA: Kelly had a question about the photo I used. It's not an original photo of mine, it was simply cut out of the Life's Journey Stamp Collage Paper and it's only about 1-1/2 x 2".
